Tasting Notes and Description
Tasting Notes For Girard Artistry 2017
We source Cabernet Sauvignon for this blend from St. Helena, Oakville, Diamond Mountain and Pope Valley for their ability to offer rich and supple fruit flavors with well-integrated tannins. Merlot from Yountville and Rutherford lend lush fruit components while our primary sources for Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot from Pope Valley allow for longer hang time. Our Petit Verdot tends to be our last fruit brought in, allowing for complex character and tannin development while the Yountville Malbec adds mid-palate weight and juiciness. The artful blend of grapes come from both hillside and valley floor vineyards, providing rich texture, balance and integrated tannins. Every year, this blend is perfected to showcase the very best of each year’s harvest.
Our 2017 Artistry showcases the beauty and elegance of blending varieties and regions into one unified expression. The nose reveals black cherry, cassis and bramble aromas with savory hints of cigar box and dried herbs. The palate is endowed with blueberry, brioche, vanilla bean and nutmeg flavors. The finish is lengthy and gilded with integrated scents of oak and spice.
